Medline Marathon Liquid Skin Protectant (Box of 5)

The Medline Marathon Liquid Skin Protectant (Box of 5) is designed to protect intact or damaged skin from breakdown caused by friction or moisture. It minimizes friction and reduces the risk of developing skin tears and creates a strong physical barrier against abrasive forces. It is also recommended for damaged skin to protect against further breakdown and can be applied to pressure points to avoid the effects of friction which can reduce the risk of skin breakdown.

The Medline Marathon Liquid Skin Protectant provides higher strength and higher resistance to wash off than other thin film barriers and is resistant to external moisture, yet it allows the skin to breathe.

The Medline Marathon Liquid Skin Protectant is a non-stinging, cyanoacrylatebased monomer that forms a fully conformable, flexible and remarkably strong protective layer over intact or damaged skin. It bonds to the skin surface while supporting the natural integrity of the skin.

When to use the Medline Marathon Liquid Skin Protectant

  • Protects skin from prolonged exposure to moisture, which weakens and damages the skin surface and makes it more susceptible to breakdown.
  • Incontinence: Marathon Liquid Skin Protectant should be used on at-risk areas such as the sacrum, buttocks and groin area.
  • Stomas and drain sites: Helps protect the area around stomas and drain sites from breakdown caused by body fluids, exudate and the effect of adhesives.
  • Wounds: Maintains skin surface cell integrity. Healed wounds never attain the same breaking strength (the tension at which skin breaks) as uninjured skin Applying Marathon Liquid Skin Protectant to the skin once it has closed should help protect it and maintain integrity

How to use the Medline Marathon Liquid Skin Protectant

  1. Marathon Liquid Skin Protectant is contained in a single-use sterile applicator. Each 0.5ml applicator can cover a 4” x 4” area.
  2. The product should be applied in a very thin layer, without covering the site more than once. Less means more.
  3. Marathon Liquid Skin Protectant can be used when the epidermis is broken or damaged. However, it should not be applied directly to deep, open, chronic or bleeding wounds.
  4. Marathon Liquid Skin Protectant adheres to the skin and dries in less than a minute.
  5. Marathon Liquid Skin Protectant can remain on the skin for several days. It will wear off naturally as the skin regenerates.

How does Medline Marathon Liquid Skin Protectant work?

Marathon Liquid Skin Protectant consists of individual molecules (cyanoacrylate-based monomers) that polymerize when they come into contact with moisture on the skin surface. This reaction continues until 100% of the monomer molecules have joined either to each other (cohesion) or to molecules of the substances present in skin (adhesion). This type of bonding with skin at a molecular level ensures that the product remains in place until the epidermal cells naturally slough away, enhancing skin integrity. Contrary to other barrier films and skin preps, no solvents are used (there is no evaporation) and 100% of the product remains on the skin. Therefore, a little product goes a long way.
